Local organization fighting fentanyl crisis
"My wife of seven years died of a fentanyl overdose on December 12, 2022," said local resident, Jon Michaels.
Sadly, losing a loved one to fentanyl is becoming the story for many people in the Wichita community.
Organization Safe Streets of Wichita handed out Narcan kits on the corner of Lewis and Broadway on Saturday in hopes of helping to combat this issue.
Safe Streets Coalition Chair Lisa Vayda said she receives calls from concerned parents and Uber drivers in need of kits.
Vayda said the organization received funding for 4000 kits to last 5 months. She said in March they had already distributed 1600 kits.
